Shopify continues to build out functionality, with the latest addition being support for blog comments. This feature is great news for small businesses who are considering using Shopify as their CMS (as Karora is doing with their new site), in addition to their e-commerce needs. No longer will you need to integrate a separate blogging service (Typepad, Blogger, etc) with your store. A couple of cool features:
- It is possible to enable comments for specific blogs only.
- Comments are run through Defensio's spam filter, which has a 99.77% accuracy rate.
- The look and feel of comments can be customized using liquid.
Nice thing about this: pricing remains the same.
